Happy Birthday wishes to Harold Murphy and others
Last week a friend of mine was traveling through Holly Springs from Little Rock. She sent me a message asking where in town could they go for a good dinner. I sent them to JB’s and mentioned they might want to tackle Graceland, Too, before leaving. I was glad to be able to give them a couple of places they could go after dark in town. I only wish they had been here during the day so they could visit all of our cute shops around town! Angie’s Boutique has added a Mississippi room featuring wares made right here in our state. Angie was helped by her family on constructing a darling entrance to the Mississippi area, unlike any other I have seen. It is very rustic and welcoming.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Harold Murphy (who flipped a number), Kay Wheeler, Mary Neely Jones and Peyton Stephenson. They all celebrated last week.
Get well wishes go out to Wesleyann Ray, who had knee surgery last week.

Relaxation – rehab – recovery
My letter today is to let all know that I am taking a leave of absence for a while. It will be a period of R & R & R ~ relaxation, rehab and recovery. I will miss writing for a time, but I plan to write another book while I am here.
This is a reminder: make a will. Get your life in order and don’t leave any regrets. Forgive and forget. Do your life’s work today as tomorrow may never come. Write down important family histories of past generations. Tomorrow is a new day. Make it good while you are able. Jesus is your insurance policy into Heaven, and you want to go to Heaven.
Don’t forget to keep a reign on your blood pressure. It is a silent monster.
Please pray for me that the Lord will bless me. I have tried to leave indelible memories. In life you just get to go around once. I am entering a new room in my life. Ira and I are going on a new adventure!
If you’d like to drop a card or note, please send to “Baptist Memorial Hospital, North Mississippi, Lois Shipp c/o Acute Rehab Unit, 2301 South Lamar, Oxford, MS 38655.
